Swaffham-based STG Aerospace has seen its order books boosted by a contract extension with Southwest Airlines.
The deal will see it retrofitting its SafTglo lighting system on the Dallas-based firm's fleet of Boeing 737-300s.
Installation will begin in 2013 as part the airline's new Evolve interior.
The latest announcement comes on a tailwind for the Norfolk company, which recently secured a 10-year deal with Boeing to supply its innovative in-flight floor path marking systems.
The multi-million-pound contract is set to help the company reach a turnover target of £10m, while the 10-year contract extension is also expected to help boost staff numbers.
